Hey Weight Loss Nation!
How about some healthy chocolate mousse?
Aquafaba Chocolate Mousse
6 ounces dark chocolate dairy-free (Taza Wicked 95% Dark Choc 2 Bars)
You can use whatever brand of Dark Chocolate you want. Make sure the chocolate has 80% of Cacao in it. I use Taza “Wicked Dark” Chocolate bar. Taza has one of the least processed Dark Chocolate in the friggin world. With the “Wicked Dark,” containing 95% Dark Chocolate, SWEET is NO longer in the equation. We’re talking HEALTHY HERE!
Go to www.tazachocolate.com to purchase “Wicked Dark” Chocolate Bars.
Dark chocolate gives you a variety of antioxidants including POLYPHENOLS!! Antioxidants help prevent damage in your body caused by oxidative stress and harmful free radicals. That means Dark Chocolate with 80% or more cacao….is part of our PAC MAN Family!!
- 1 15 oz can unsalted chickpeas BPA-free. BPA is that crap in the lining of cans that can get into your system causing toxicity and whatever…
- ¼ tsp cream of tartar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Pinch of sea salt
- Fresh raspberries & optional coconut flakes to serve
- ¼ Cup of Raw, Unfiltered Honey (straight from the Bee’s Ass people!)
Buy LOCAL Raw, Unfiltered Honey. That’s the best for you. If you live near Savannah, GA you wouldn’t want to buy Raw, Unfiltered Honey from Oregon, because the honey from Oregon contains local pollen & nutrients from that area. If you live in Oregon, check out Raw Oregon Honey at www.raworegonhoney.com
If you live near Savannah, GA you want raw, local honey that contains the local pollen & nutrients from your neighborhood. check out HL Franklin Honey at www.FranklinFoodsLLC.com
Honey is made up of 38.2% of fructose, 31% glucose and only 1.3 % sucrose. Maple Syrup is basically 99.9 % sucrose. White table sugar, and brown sugar are also 99.9 % sucrose.
Your body breaks down the “sugars” into Glucose. Since Sucrose is a “Di-Saccharide…the body has to break it down 2x in the body.
Fructose is a mono-saccharide and is absorbed directly into the body, but it will need to be “converted” into Glucose by the Liver first.
That’s why RAW…Unfiltered Honey is sooo good for you!
The body isn’t working so hard to convert the molecules into Glucose!
- Chop dark chocolate and place in a double boiler, or in a glass bowl over boiling water on the stove. Gently melt chocolate, stirring every now and then until completely melted. Remove from heat and pour chocolate into a large bowl. Set aside to slightly cool.
- Drain chickpeas, reserving liquid aquafaba, and store chickpeas for another use.
- In a large bowl add in aquafaba (about ¾ cup should be reserved) along with cream of tartar. Using a hand mixer, mix on high speed for 7-10 minutes, or until soft peaks begin to form. Add in vanilla extract, salt, and raw honey and beat until mixed.
- Add ½ the melted chocolate to the whipped aquafaba and fold until incorporated. Fold in the remaining ½ aquafaba until smooth and combined.
- Gently spoon chocolate mousse into glasses, small mason jars, or ramekins. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
- Add some raspberries to serve.
